ZHANG HUAN. In the Ashes of History

St. Petersburg


Pearl Lam Galleries is proud to support the exhibition Zhang Huan. In the Ashes of History, co-curated by Dimitri Ozerkov, Anastasia Veialko, and Wu Hung. The exhibition celebrates Zhang Huan as the first Chinese contemporary artist to open a solo exhibition at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg — one of the most prestigious museums in the world. The show highlights Zhang Huan’s consistent use of unconventional materials and techniques through works that convey his aesthetic judgment and social critique. The exhibition features more than 30 works from four different series: Ash Paintings, Memory Doors, Love /Reincarnation series and the installation of the Hermitage Buddha. Zhang Huan created My Winter Palace consisting of new works inspired by the artist’s first visit to the Hermitage. The exhibition will be on view at Nicholas Hall of the Winter Palace.
